Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski strikes me as a guy who who wouldn't admit to the media he likes eating chocolate cake.
He's just not a baseball executive who likes to commit to much of anything during hot stove season.
So seeing a tweet from @official_tigers confirming the Tigers' offer to outfielder Johnny Damon was nearly as surprising as the comments that came out of Dombrowski's media session moments later.
"First of all, he's a good player, who would help us from an offensive standpoint," said Dombrowski, the Tigers' president and general manager. "He's another left-hand bat, and he's been a winner.
"He's been a good player."
This is so outside the Tigers' norms that I do not even know how to react to it.
